After a flop of Ad9s8c with about 800K in the pot, the player in the small blind moved all in, and Thomas Boyden thought for a while before he called all in for 685,000 with KhKd.

The small blind turned over KcJc for a king-high bluff, and Boyden just needed to avoid runner-runner outs to stay alive.

The turn card was the As, the river card was the 8h, and Boyden won the pot with his pocket kings to double up in chips.

Thomas Boyden  –  2,175,000  (36 bb)
